Reading Clipped in preparation for the release of Timber next month, I fell in love with both Wes and Avery in this enemies-to-lovers steamy romance that had a lot of laughs, a lot of sex and a lot of real emotion as well.
“None of your rules apply when you look at me like you want to f*** me.”
The chemistry between uptight Avery and her high school nemesis Wes was palpable and I was truly existing my Kindle to ignite there was so much heat. But what also made this a great story was the well-rounded characters (including the supporting ones - I cannot wait for Lucy's book!) and genuine plot. It wasn't just sex for the sake of it, and with Marley and Jacob at the helm I wouldn't expect anything anything less.
I will definitely be devouring the rest of the Remy Blake back catalogue asap!!
That all changes when Avery's mum has a stroke which leaves her no choice but to return. And who did her sister get to pick her up from the airport? None other than Wesley Steele, the guy responsible for her high school bullying.
It's obvious from when he first picks her up that there is a mutual attraction, but for Avery it starts an internal war.
My eyes zero in on the way the material rises, exposing his skin. Like clockwork, the battle begins, my mind hates him and my body wants him.
From that point on its just fun back and forth as Avery finds herself working for Wes at his tree removal company 'Good Wood Tree Removal Inc'. I loved that name ;)
Wes is a modern day lumberjack big, beard and cuts trees down for a living. He acts very cocky and arrogant but it's soon clear that's all for show, He was very sweet maybe a little too sweet for me and didn't come across very alpa. I loved the competition between the other local lumberjack and the way Avery would tease him about it.
This was a quick sweet read, I would call this an enemies to lovers romance but Wes obviously had a 'thing' for Avery all along. This just lacked a little depth for me but was still entertaining.
The dynamic writing duo is known for offering hot taboo reads, and Clipped did not disappoint in the slightest. The story captured me from the very first page making me want to learn more about the protagonists, Avery and Wes. It has a fluidity with an abundance of banter between the two along with off the charts chemistry. Male and female authors make up this partnership and I don’t know how they do it but they’ve managed to pull off another captivating story.
Avery left her home town Piney View eight years previous due to her being teased terribly in high school and wanting to make something of herself; however, a family tragedy brings her back to the town she fought so hard to leave. Avery is sassy, strong and can hold her own when it comes to her arch nemesis Wes Steele. She can give as good as she gets and boy, does she stand up to him.
Wes is a lumberjack whose business is called Good Wood Tree Removal Inc. He is a cocky, arrogant alpha who gets a real kick out of winding Avery up. He always did at school and seeing her for the first time since she left town, he can’t resist getting under her skin calling her the nickname he gave her all those years ago.
“Why are you being so nice? Should I be worried?”
“I’m always nice. In fact you haven’t even begun to realise how,” nice I can be.”
I instantly warmed to the supporting character, Lucy who is Avery’s sister and happens to be best friends with Wes. Lucy’s son, Jeremiah, completely looks up to Wes. Poor Avery, has no chance of getting away from Wes as he sees her sister and nephew regularly. Much to her annoyance, more so when she sees a sweet side to him with his interaction with Jeremiah. There is also a tinge of jealousy which made me question if her feelings ran deeper than just having a strong dislike to Wes.
“But you and I, we should definitely be more than just friends. Friends with benefits?”
“Ugh. And we’ve come full circle. A civil conversation did nothing to change how annoying you are.”
“You’ll fall in love with me soon enough.”
“Love? Please, I barely like you.”
With so much going on in this story it was difficult to put down. I was constantly wanting to know where this frenemies storyline was leading to. Lucy unwittingly pushes Avery into helping Wes at the office as he is snowed under with work and in need of a secretary.
I was constantly either smiling or laughing at the two culminating in a lot of hilarious sequence of events that I won’t give away as you will have to read it to find out. There is no predictability with the flow of the story at all. I must keep touching on the hilarity of Clipped because that was predominant throughout the story and what I loved is we get a lot of story and depth with the characters that doesn’t go straight into sex scenes. The chemistry and build-up made it more about what they are portrayed as people, and how they interact as opposed to just raunchy scenes. Don’t be put off though, some of the steamy scenes are very impressive and engaging. Clipped is a must read which deserves five stars. When a story can make me smile and leave me thinking about it long after finishing, it’s worth it.

'You'll fall in love with me soon enough,'(Wes)
'Love? Please,I barely like you' (Avery)
Another Hot,Enjoyable read from this Male/Female Author Duo,that felt a bit different from what we've had before from them-not so much of 'Taboo' side to the story this time round-(okay there is a reference to a subject which is often thought of as such-used in nickname for Avery) Anyway,you'll see for yourselves when you read.
As the blurb states,Avery has been away from her hometown for a few years,and on her return she comes into contact with Wes,(who was part responsible for her need to get away in the first place)
An enemies to friends/lovers tale unfolds,with some humorous banter,DUAL POV's, the inevitable HOTNESS,dating Apps,misunderstandings..great side character's,with the hope of more[Avery's sister Lucy should have her own tale] even with it wrapping up on the fast side towards the end-This Author Duo work well together,and I can't wait to see what they come up with next!
You guys have managed it again bringing us another quick book that draws us in and keeps us hooked until the end!
This is the story of hot manly lumberjack Wes and quiet studious Avery.. going through high school together leaves Avery seeing Wes in the worst way.. what will happen when she has to go back to their small town to look after a poorly relative?!! Does everyone deserve a second chance?
Definitely recommend this book!
Clipped, by the writing duo Remy Blake, is an absolute joy! It's a fun, sexy novella with great characters and storyline alike. This book is a definite must read!
